Opportunities abound for you to get involved in the BCA, in a variety of ways! Read on for more details.
Planning is underway for the next paper edition of our newsletter, which, like this blog, is called the Buckman Voice. We’re currently soliciting articles on any topic you think would be of interest to your neighbors. They don’t have to be long; even just a few paragraphs is fine. Examples include: a group or organization you’d like to publicize, a new local business that you think people should know about, a neighborhood cause you’d like to stump for, etc. To pitch us your idea, simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Articles are due by Thursday, March 8th. You can download PDF versions of past issues of the Buckman Voice from our website: http://www.buckmanpdx.org/newsletter.
Because we hand-deliver copies of the Buckman Voice to every home in the neighborhood, we’re also always on the lookout for volunteers willing to help with the delivery. It’s a great excuse to get out for a stroll and perhaps meet some new neighbors. Volunteers are encouraged to e-mail us at email@example.com.
Questions for our Candidate Forums
We’re in the midst of election season, and the BCA is getting in on the action by hosting candidate forums at our next two monthly meetings. At our March meeting, which will be held on Thursday March 8th, we’ll be inviting the candidates for the two City Council seats to come and take questions from our members. At our April meeting, on Thursday April 12th, we’ll be doing the same with the candidates for mayor. Of course, you’re encouraged to attend both meetings in person, where you can ask questions of the candidates, but if you can’t make it for any reason, you can also submit questions to us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also feel free to post questions on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/groups/50481109906.
We’re 6 months away from our third annual Summer Picnic in the Park, to be held on Sunday, August 5th. We’re looking for volunteers to help with the picnic planning and organizing process. It’s a fun and easy way to get involved in your neighborhood by helping to put on this great event. Interested parties are welcome to e-mail us at email@example.com.
